About the Canadian Safety and Security Program

The Canadian Safety and Security Program (CSSP) is a federally-funded program led by Defence Research and Development Canada’s Centre for Security Science (DRDC CSS), in partnership with Public Safety Canada.

Launched in 2012, CSSP’s collaborative model fosters, through different mechanisms, innovative science and technology advancements that contribute to the safety and security of Canadians. In order to sustain growth in our fields of interest, increase capabilities and respond to a changing environment, DRDC CSS works domestically and internationally in partnership with government, industry, and academia.


“A safe and secure Canada through science and technology leadership”


The Canadian Safety and Security Program’s (CSSP) mission is to strengthen Canada's ability to anticipate, prevent, mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from natural disasters, serious accidents, crime and terrorism through the convergence of science and technology (S&T) with policy, operations, and intelligence.
